The Camden Flux Programme
2017 sees the 50th anniversary of the Sexual Offences Act (1967) which introduced the partial decriminalisation of same sex relationships in England and Wales via an act of Parliament.

Throughout the year Camden will host a wide range of events, screenings, exhibitions, talks and online articles to explore, celebrate and reflect upon the history of LGBTQ+ culture, activism, societal shifts and legal and cultural breakthroughs, and to look towards the future in this ever changing social and cultural landscape.
